The Dash 3G looks like a cool phone in a lot of ways.
One very nice addition would be-- a touch screen!
Traditionally, of course, phones with that form factor do not have a touch screen-as the prior Dash, Motorola Q, the Samsung Blackjack, many of the Treos, etc.
However, the new trend is to have touch screens on that type of phone--such as the Treo Pro, the iPAQ 910, and the Samsung Epix. Even though the screens are much smaller than the large screen no-keyboard (or sliding keyboard) models, the touch capability can come in handy. But more importantly, the touch screen means the WM Pro OS, rather than the Standard, and in most respects the pro OS is better, and has more software available.
If this phone had a touch screen it might be my next phone. As is, not sure.
Having used PocketPC's for a few years and recently switched to the Dash 3G, I must admit that I dont miss the touch screen. Most of the newer software is written to support WM standard, which means I can navigate around using the D-pad (trackball on the Dash 3G). Once I got used to it, I much prefer using a single hand and my thumb to get around the programs rather than needing two hands and the pen.
This is just my own experience so far, but I really think WM standard seems more stable than WM pro...less reboots, hung apps, etc.
